Aaron Vickers

A solid two-way puck mover. Skates well, willing to engage physically and use his body to separate the puck from opponents. Sees the ice well and reads the developing play. Makes strong accurate passes with good timing, moving the puck up ice quickly. Plays well with his partner and makes himself an active outlet. More often than not he makes good decisions in his own zone and with the puck. Not overly ashy but steady and effective when he keeps it simple. Can get sloppy when trying to do too much. Displays a good amount of aggressiveness and battle in his game. Came into the U18’s in Germany needing to show what he could do after a solid but unspectacular season, he proceeded to contribute at both ends and put up eight points in six games for the eventual Champions. Headed to Notre Dame where can add strength and continue to develop. (May 2011)
